Games on the Go

When was the last time you heard a traditional telephone ring?

 

Today phones announce incoming calls with hit songs, movie sound clips, barking dogs, and college fight songs. Most people are familiar with downloadable ringtones and wallpapers for cell phones, but have you tried any mobile games?

 

Since my last entry talked about advergaming, I thought I’d explore games on mobile devices this time. Do you have games on your cell phone or mp3 player? I tried a simple typing game and the ever-popular Bejeweled on my trusty little phone soon after I got it, but have just discovered the many options out there – free and paid.

 

Many companies have created games and made them available for free download to mobile devices. Coca-Cola offers a soccer game, for example, and Audi has the A4 Driving Challenge. Branded games are, for the most part, free. Would you mind seeing a logo all over your game if it were fun and free? Or would you rather pony up a few bucks and buy a “pure” game for your mobile device?
